I don’t have that many demands. I just want a no-bull online dating website who will give me my Perfect Match. Regular dating has gotten me burned several times and I was just about to give up. I saw an online advertisement about BlackPeopleMeet.com and that got me stirred. I have heard of success stories from my friends but am afraid of the weirdos and psychos online. Nothing ventured, nothing earned is what they always say. Let’s see how BlackPeopleMeet.com is to get my juices up and going.
Who is BlackPeopleMeet.com
This is obviously an online dating website that promises to let black people meet up for friendship, dating and be partners which might eventually lead to tying the knot. They have lots of success stories. BlackPeopleMeet.com started way back 2002, so they have made their mark on being the largest dating service for black men and women in hopes of finding love on the internet.
Signing up is pretty basic and simple with the usual profiling questions. BlackPeopleMeet.com asks for location, physical appearance, your marital status and if with kids or none. Like with most websites I have previously signed up with, they have free and paid memberships. Free membership means that you can browse all day but no interaction. Paid membership means you get to use all forms of communication that the site has to offer.
Free will get you to browse the millions of members they have. BlackPeopleMeet.coms’ paid membership of $16.75 a month is good, $13.95 each month for 3 months is better, but $11.95 a month for 6 months is the best. I have grown tired of blind dates which doesn’t give me the opportunity to get know a person first before I get to go out with them. I was pretty serious about meeting my match online, so I took the 6 months deal. I just have to take off the sodas from my grocery list to pay for the service. Sodas are bad for my health anyways.
BlackPeopleMeet.coms’ user interface was basic which means all is straightforward, nothing fancy. What I liked most is that you get to pick who you want to interact with. Sure there were possible matches from my profile but then again, victory is always sweeter after the hunt.
BlackPeopleMeet.com let’s you control the type of members you want your profile to be shown to. This is great because BlackPeopleMeet.com do value their members and I am not just some random number in their database. BlackPeopleMeet.coms’ app is sweet and can be downloaded from Google Apps.
Surprisingly, this website isn’t just for black singles. There were a lot of singles here with different ethnicity. I guess BlackPeopleMeet.com is a site for single people who wants to meet singles of different racial backgrounds. My eyes and fingers were getting pretty numb from going thru all my possible matches. They indeed had a big database that included some members within my proximity. People were viewing my profile and some were trying to flirt with me as well. From personal experience, common sense is the key to a successful match. Stay away from the needy, greedy and insane. There were some bad matches but there were other good matches. I can manually search for member using the advanced search methods and this will greatly weed out the undesirables. BlackPeopleMeet.com assures me that their site is secure, but then again, it helps if I made sure that I am secure. I would suggest to keep your profile happy, light and engaging so more people will take interest.
BlackPeopleMeet.coms’ Help Page can answer some of your questions. The FAQ helps a bit as well. But for more help, you need to email them for there are no contact numbers there for immediate help. With a paid membership like mine, this is sort of disenchanting. I suppose since I am not the only one who paid for membership, there are others like me needing help, they could focus on helping me better if I were to explain the kind of assistance I need.
Times have indeed change and we always have options. BlackPeopleMeet.com gives me hope that there are indeed people searching for the same thing I am looking for. They help me cut down the search for a suitable match. I could use some more help with their dating articles but they have a large member database.
